The Dutch pedophile party

Just to make things clear I’ll come right out and say I think that what these people stand for is very, very wrong. That doesn’t mean I think they should be banned. In all the discussion of this party, such as this recent article in the SMH where they list their policies,

The Brotherly Love, Freedom and Diversity party (PNVD) was launched in May and its campaign for a cut in the age of consent from 16 to 12 and the legalisation of child pornography and sex with animals has provoked widespread outrage in the Netherlands.

the journalists, like outraged bloggers, fail to make any comparison with how these policies actually sit compared with other European countries.

It’s the age of consent policy that is interesting. It seems to escape notice that in other European countries the age of consent is not much higher than what they are aiming for. Many countries have 14, and in Spain the age of consent is 13 raised from 12 in briefly 1995. It seems the fact that a majority of politicians in Spain at some point agreed to these laws doesn’t spark the outrage and demands that they must be silenced that an extreme fringe Dutch group do when they are labelled the “pedophile party”. For reference, I think around 16 is appropriate, whether some children are mature enough earlier is irrelevant compared with protecting the greater number from exploitation by adults.

The other thing I find surprising is that people don’t have confidence to think that their policies are so offensive that virtually everyone else will not vote for them and need to have them banned.

In July, a Dutch court rejected a bid by a children’s rights group to have the party banned, saying it was protected by democratic freedoms and judges could not take lightly a decision to ban a political party.

The Netherlands, which already has liberal policies on soft drugs, prostitution and gay marriage, has been shocked by the new party. An opinion poll showed 82 per cent want the government to do something to stop the party.

Which is a solid 82% who won’t be voting for them, even forgetting the remaining 17.9% of people who also won’t but don’t feel the need for an immediate ban. The media of course love the sideshow and outrage, and so give them airtime they don’t deserve. There is few things as hypocritical as an outrage story about exposing the opinions some fringe group no one would otherwise have heard of.

    No goverment on this planet should never let these sick people abuse on children and animals. They all should be castrated and put into a high security prison.

    What even if they’ve committed no crimes?

    Yuo throw people in prison for committing crimes, not advocating legislative change.

  3. Francisco says:

    Remember, people who want this change are people who already have commited this type of crime. No NORMAL person on this planet will ever want this absurd legislative change. In our hearts that bahavor does not exist, but for those sick bastards is a common thing, they do not even realize how abnormal and sick it is. the legislative change they want is a crime. just the action of thinking that they are hoping to have young children for their sick pleasures is a crime not only towards any law on this planet but mainly towards God. If I ever see one of these sick bastards molesting a child that will be his last time he ever does it or anything else.

    The netherlads has already liberal policies on drugs, prostitution and gay marriage and now is about pedophilism, what else are they going come up with? These people have nothing to do so instead of coming up with something great they only show sick behavors. how can we let this happen? people do not realize but at this rate things are going to get worse and worse, humans are becoming sicker and sicker.

  5. Steve says:

    Fransisco
    The point of legislative change is to make illegal things legal or the reverse.

    Wy are you worried about these people forming a political party. I agree with you that they are sick but they aren’t going to have a hope of being elected.

  6. Steve says:

    Frank,

    As I pointed out most people in the Netherlands DON’T want this. Unless they vote for it they won’t get it either. You don’t need to ban people advocating unpopular legislative change, because it won’t ever occur.

  7. Francisco says:

    Thank you Steve for your answer, My main concern is seeing people letting wrong things becoming worse because they have no strengh to speak up.
    In a way I am against to gay marriage but I let it off because people are free to do with their adult body whatsoever they want, (and there are more and more countries permiting it ) but i am strongly against these people adopting children. When the kids go to school they are gonna say; this man is my father and this man is my mum, or this woman is my father and this woman is my mum.
    If this party ever wins for sure will come after more and more parties in other countries untill it is impossible to do anything about it.

    Francisco:

    I despise pedophiles as well, but if they win (get their laws through), then we are just a bitching minority. That’s a thing called democracy. If you don’t like it, I suggest you come up with a better system.

    What’s it take to become a sublime exupnoder of prose like yourself?
